In the USA, crime laboratories, which use forensic science to examine evidence, may be publicly or privately operated. Private labs typically do not respond to crime scenes to collect evidence. Most states have their own crime labs. Our crime lab listings show all private and public facilities in Michigan.

Jails, unlike federally- or state-run prisons, are operated locally, by cities and counties. These are short term facilities, and hold misdemeanants sentenced to terms of one year or less, or inmates awaiting trial on the local level.
